Do you want to blame Danny? Then don’t miss the epic Marji Gesick 100. Created by Danny Hill, Todd Poquette, and the 906 Adventure Team, the Marji Gesick 100 features 100-mile bike or running races along with 50 mile options. While the top winners get $1, all athletes who finish under a certain time are awarded a hand-forged belt buckle for their physical sacrifice. New for 2017, organizers have added a 15-mile run for those who only want to suffer a little. Regardless of what race participants choose, there will be rocks, roots, and lots of climbing, but the bragging rights remain to those who compete September 22 – 23.

None of these great events take place without the tremendous support of many Marquette County organizations and businesses as well as countless volunteers. Smiling faces to lend a hand or cheer on participants are always welcome and encouraged.
